They started life as an online casino, having obtained their gaming licence back in 2015 and recently, Rizk have just added a sportsbook. It’s open to UK players as they have complied with Gambling Commission regulations so we took a look at what they had to offer.
You may already have a wide set of sportsbooks on your own portfolio but read on to see why we think Rizk are worth including on that list.
Sporting Markets and Odds Value
The range of available markets looks to be typical of a European focused operator. Most of the main sports seem to be here and the niches are among those that would appeal to customers in mainland Europe. UK punters are catered for too, however, and here is that full list.
Alpine Skiing, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, Badminton, Bandy, Baseball, Basketball, Biathlon, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Floorball, Football, Futsal, Golf, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motorsport, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Table Tennis, Tennis, Volleyball, other Winter Sports.
Eagle eyed readers in the UK will have noticed that there are no markets for horse racing or greyhounds in that list. It’s a shame but that’s not untypical of new sportsbooks and we have plenty of options elsewhere.
Don’t ignore Rizk purely on that basis as the majority of popular sports are here with a good set of niches thrown in. And, if you like to get involved with eSports, we really suggest you check them out as there are lots of choices with markets separated into different games.
Odds comparison sites will be slow to pick up Rizk but we’ve checked a few prices from football betting. This is usually a good indicator for all sports and we saw that Rizk are likely to be competitive across the board, No-one can stand out with the best prices every time but the odds are sound and this is Rizk’s main selling point.
Most gambling customers in the UK don’t need a wide range of obscure eWallets to access their account. In that sense, Rizk may be a perfect fit because they only include the most popular companies. Skrill, Neteller and PaySafeCard are the names in question while account holders can also make use of bank transfers and all of the main debit cards.
Deposits are fast and free and withdrawals are free too but there can be a delay of up to 3 days depending on which method you use. Check the Payment Options button for full details and this is where you’ll also find details of minimum and maximum limits.
Rizk have already installed a live chat button and that’s a big plus for most customers. This is the way that UK bettors like to sort things out – quickly and efficiently with the minimum of fuss. For more anonymous enquiries, there is a customer support email but it’s a little hard to locate. Scroll down to the bottom of the homepage, click on the About Us link and all will be revealed.
Both options have been effective and while it would be preferable if the email were easier to find, this is another positive aspect of the Rizk operation.
They’ve not been in operation for too long but already there is lots to admire about Rizk. The main point to note if you are in the UK is that flashy, gimmicky offers have been replaced by long term competitive odds. Bonuses are nice at times but for those who just want everyday value, this is a good place to play.
There is a good choice of UK markets too and if we can look beyond the fact that horse racing and greyhound racing are not covered, it’s a list that will appeal to players in Great Britain. Great odds and a range of markets are the main reasons to sign up here.
- Competitive Odds in a wide range of betting markets
- Good choice of funding options which are free and fast
